How do I become a member?
SIGN UP FOR A MEMBERSHIP CLASS
We cover the basics like the history and vision of UPC, our core values and beliefs and what it means to be Presbyterian. This class is the first step to becoming a member of UPC. Childcare is not provided during the class, but you are welcome to bring your children with you.
The next membership class will be in October. To be added to the list to be notified when the date is set and registration is open, please email Becky.
If you decide to join, you will complete a registration form at the class and be welcomed into the UPC family during a "joining day" Sunday service with other new members. Membership Sunday happens twice a year in conjunction with the classes. You will learn about your joining day details when you attend the class.
According to Presbyterian tradition, you need to be baptized to be a member of the church. If you were baptized earlier in life, or at a non-Presbyterian church, there is not need to be baptized again. If you haven’t been baptized, you will be baptized as part of Membership Sunday.
